* Like He-Man from this series, Skeletor does look to be very Filmation inspired. I think it's the choice of colors, the way the skull is sculpted, and the design of the Havoc Staff. The colors are spot on and Skeletor looks excellent. He suitably muscular and evil meaning you'll need lots of heroic ornaments on your tree to shut him down. I'm going to place him surrounded by He-Man, G.I. Joe, Batman, and three Magi to keep him in check.
* The headsculpt does look like the Filmation design. It almost looks like he was sculpted in a laughing pose. It's a bit unusual looking up close but from the average distance you view Christmas tree ornaments (you know, when they're hanging on a tree rather than being reviewed on a website) he looks excellent. And evil. Don't let him team up with Ebenezer Scrooge and Professor Hinkle!
* The Havoc Staff captures the Filmation design perfectly and looks great. I love the sculpt on it. There's quite a bit of detail for a Christmas ornament.
* There is a bit of messy paint on this guy, most noticeably around the edges of hood and face. You might shop around and find one a bit better (and probably some a bit worse) so keep an eye out.
